SECRETS lie hidden within the dark depths and recesses of Kelham’s great monastic halls; whisperings between resident monks of dark deeds and strange noises cut short by an Abbot’s glare.
Something has certainly gone terribly wrong at Kelham Hall but for now you must put your fears to one side and answer Father Frederick’s call for help as one of his own has VANISHED!
Unseen for days young Novice Tobius is missing and the worst is feared. Father Frederick is pleading with you to search areas of the great monastery for clues to his whereabouts and bring back the truth.
He claims this is now your SACRED mission.
As you enter this ancient and holy site you can feel the darkness and dread that permeates the very air you breathe.
The brotherhood await your findings….hoping you will return……..

A fellow brother monk has gone missing, donning our robes we dashed off to find him before the calling of Mass..  What follows is a good game that leads you through some well decorated areas as you piece together the mystery of whats happened.  Clever ideas abound in this game, whilst not as good (IMHO) as The Rig, it is still very much worth your time.

Reviews by escape room review sites

LetsXcape are certainly fortunate in their location; not only is Kelham Hall a huge and lovely Victorian mansion, but it boasts some interesting history which makes for good inspiration for the company's escape rooms. Sacred is inspired by the Hall's history as a theological college, though the game design takes that idea and runs with it in ways that would no doubt sit poorly with some of the Hall's alumni.
The game's premise is that one of the senior monks has enlisted your help in finding th...
Costumes, puzzles, and one of the nicest owner/GMs you'll ever meet. We preferred The Rig but Sacred is a very good room and has plenty to keep you occupied
We came to Letsxcape to play The Rig and it was a last minute decision to also play Sacred. We are so glad we did because both are excellent games but for us, Sacred piped it.
